magicians = ["Alice", "David", "Carolina"]

for magicians in magicians:
		print(magicians)
		
for magicians in magicians:
		print(magicians.title() + ", that was a great trick!")

I do this ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

 

I get this as my output... 

 

Alice

David
Carolina
C, that was a great trick! 
A, that was a great trick!
R, that was a great trick!
O, that was a great trick!
L, that was a great trick!
I, that was a great trick!
N, that was a great trick!
A, that was a great trick!

I don't really know Python, but I would guess that it's a variable scope issue.

 

My guess as to how you can fix it -- rename the variable names in the for loops.

Even if that isn't the issue, I would personally refrain from having identical names for the variable describing each separate magician and the collection of magicians.

 

E.g. try

 

for magician1 in magicians

 print(magician1)

 

for magician2 in magicians

 print (magician2.title() + ", that was a great trick!")
